comment It seems that 渡る is categorized as 自動詞 (intransitive verb), yet it is frequently used with を. Why?
Here of course is the linguistic jargon on which I'm not as up to speed as I should be! Thank you

comment Etymology of grammar-related terms in Japanese
Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's not what a 前置詞 is. A 前置詞 refers specifically to prepositions that you find in English and other languages. As far as I know Japanese doesn't have prepositions. I don't know what the term for a word about location is, but that's not a preposition. At least not in Japanese. Note that it literally means something that comes 'before'a clause (like "to the store") with "to" being the 前置詞. Japanese doesn't have that kind of positioning.
